let it glow!

If you’re anything like us, you are currently feeling that end of February slump in the epidermis department. But lucky for you, we’ve called in the big guns….


Danuta Mieloch of Rescue Rittenhouse Spa, has six tips to bring out your skin’s inner “Winter glow.”


“It is so important to protect your skin in this harsh, cold weather.” Says Danuta, “One of my favorite moisturizers for this season is the Prime Regenera II.  This ultra rich nutritious cream was formulated to struggle against skin dryness with its repairing and healing properties.  It is recommended for severe weather conditions.  Perfect when on the slopes skiing or whenever you’re spending time outside.”


Combine with these six simple steps….


1. Prep work first. Good cleansing is your shortcut to beautiful skin. Pick the right cleanser (I like Lait VIP O2 this season) really work your cleanser in because massaging will boost circulation. I recommend double cleansing at night to ensure all the makeup and grime is off.


2. Rebalance. Legendary P50 1970 does an amazing job at balancing the PH, refining pores, and restoring suppleness. Use a cotton pad with upward sweeping motions, lifting face muscles and working outward. Lifting upward is like a workout for your face. Having good skin is a lot about circulation so a natural blush after P50 is a plus. This product truly transforms the skin.


3. Supercharge. Serums are sure way to provide your skin with potent ingredients, vitamins, peptides, and antioxidants. Because their molecular structure is much smaller they penetrate the epidermis better than heavy creams. My favorite is LeGrand Serum. It’s a splurge worthy powerhouse for this season.


4. Winter Proof Skin. My new winter favorite multitasker is Masque Vernix. This formula changes peoples skin. Its formulated to mimic the protective skin barrier in newborn babies. Containing essential complex ingredients such as amino acids, it’s like nutrition for baby soft skin. It has a rich texture so using less is more.


5. You are what you eat. If your digestion isn’t working the body has a hard time absorbing nutrients. A well functioning digestive system is essential to an anti-aging regime. Nutrients play a key note in your elasticity and collagen production. Greens aid digestion resulting in radiant skin. Lean protein & Amino acid rich foods improve overall health of your skin, hair & nails. Probiotics replenish good bacteria. Load up on yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut, and fermented vegetables. Take magnesium too, it supports healthy beauty sleep, keeping the hormones young. Omega 3 fatty acids are great for your heart and healthy looking skin as well.

Sunscreen. Always.

By now you know the importance of sunscreen, but we’ll say it again: You need to wear it, every single day, rain or shine. Even is subzero weather.

metro 250

Metropolitan Gallery 250 is pleased to present (so that I know its you) A solo show featuring the work of Sarah Coote.

(so that I know it’s you), on view March 6th-28th, considers the layers of artifice involved when we package ourselves online. Sarah Coote’s paintings focus on subjects sourced from Tinder profiles, Craigslist missed connections and other platforms that exhibit our desire to connect within a virtual sphere. Expressive gesture decontextualizes users’ identity, inviting a dialogue on our universal experience performing within the spectacle of the Internet.

Sarah Coote lives in Philadelphia and received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence RI in 2013. (so that I know it’s you) is Coote’s second solo exhibition at Metro Gallery 250.
